Congressman Takes Aim At Point-Click-Kill Sites
from the american-grandstand dept
A few weeks ago we wrote about how the reaction to Internet hunting seemed a bit overblown, with several states proposing legislation to ban a practice that seems unlikely to attract many participants. Apparently the reaction wasn’t overblown enough. This week, Virginia Rep. Tom Davis decided to make it a federal issue, introducing a bill to make hosting such a service a crime punishable by up to five years in prison. Though it may sound a bit excessive, there will likely be little opposition to the bill, which is being backed by an odd coalition including the Humane Society, the Safari Club, and the NRA.
